Table 2 Pulse wave velocity and pulse wave analysis in Turner syndrome and healthy age-matched controls

From: Impaired aortic distensibility and elevated central blood pressure in Turner Syndrome: a cardiovascular magnetic resonance study

  Turner Syndrome Controls P-value
Augmentation index [%]b 31.4 [27.9–34.9] 24.4 [20.3–28.5] 0.02
Augmentation index [%] without CoAc 31.3 [27.5–35.21] 24.4 [20.3–28.5] 0.04
Pulse wave velocity [m/s]a 6.76 [6.39–7.16] 6.9 [6.56–7.32] 0.6
Central systolic blood pressure [mmHg]b 114.3 ± 13.1 111.3 ± 16.4 0.4
Central diastolic blood pressure [mmHg]b 78.8 ± 9.92 73.7 ± 8.94 0.02
  1. Central systolic blood pressure, central diastolic blood pressure, and Augmentation index were derived from the pulse wave analysis
